My profile

Sarah Youde (aka monroegirl)
Plymouth, UK.

I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.

I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring! Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)

....all the layouts on the catwalk were SUPPOSED to be using the Kelli Crowe collection this week. I stand corrected lol. However, I wish this had been made more apparent and then I wouldn't have been disappointed! I just want to clarify that I don't dislike the KC collection, I almost bought it! I just feel like it is all I am seeing at the moment!

Well the new Pencil Lines DT members were announced last night and there were four of them! It must have been so hard to choose but I must admit I was just waiting for Tracie Hudson's name to come up, I said to my Mum last week that I was sure she was going to be one of the new members - well done Tracie! Obviously I didn't get it lol or else I would have made it the title of my post! I didn't expect to be chosen anyway but congratulations to those that were you must be so excited today :o)

I did a bit of scrapbooking yesterday. I finished this layout of Mum which looks much better in real life as I just couldn't get the scanner to get a good image of it.

I also did this one.

My step dad is coming over today to fit some mirrors in my lounge. There is a saga about these mirrors! We ordered them in February and they didn't arrive until May. Then they have been sat in the hallway all boxed up for a month waiting to be fitted. Well, last weekend Geoff said he was going to fit them for me so I opened the box to make sure they were ok and it didn't even have mirrors in it - it was a sunbed! I don't think THAT would look very nice on my wall so I phoned the company and finally the mirrors are in my possession and will be fitted today - hooray!!!! I still have a box in the hall with a flipping sunbed in it though.
